Lyotropic Ion Channel Current Model Compared with Ising Model
- 34 Downloads
Trans-membrane currents in ligand-gated ion channels are calculated in a non-equilibrium, chemically open whole cell system. The model is lyotropic in the sense that dynamics and parameters such as ligand concentration for half-maximal response (scale of response), and threshold for firing in neurons, are nonlinear functions of the reactant concentrations. The derived total current fits recorded data significantly better than those derived from mass action, Ising, and other equilibrium type models, in which the derived response can be displaced from the assessed response by several orders in the ligand concentration. A comparison of the model obtained with an Ising-like model provides a methodology to obtain the non-equilibrium scaling dependence of Ising-like models on the reactant concentrations.
